Two-way standout Fevaea’i (A’i) Ahmu (6-2, 300, 5.2) from San Diego (Calif.) Serra was a dominate force on both sides of the ball as a junior. He has the talent to make an impact on either side of the line. Ahmu has three offers and many more are sure to be on the way.
As a junior, Ahmu was selected Defensive League MVP. He was also selected first-team all-state, first-team all-county and first-team all-league.
Ahmu racked up close to 100 tackles, had 15 quarterback knockdowns, 10 sacks, five forced fumbles, three blocked passes and he even had one interception that he rambled 69 yards for a touchdown.
Though Ahmu prefers to play defense on the next level, he will play wherever he can help the team most. That type of attitude is music to a coach’s ear.
On the gridiron Ahmu is very aggressive, quick and strong. He had to fight through double teams a lot as a junior, but Ahmu took all in stride.
“Fighting through double teams doesn’t bother me,” Ahmu said. “I’m happy to make room for our linebackers to make the play.”
Ahmu does project at this time as a defensive lineman.
What is Ahmu looking for in a school?
“Good coaching, a solid football program and a good weight room,” Ahmu said. “I also want to see how the coaching staff deals with their players.”
“I have a great high school coach who knows how to relate to players,” Ahmu said. “I would like the same type of coach in college.”
Ahmu has written offers from Wisconsin, Arizona and Colorado and has a verbal offer from UCLA.
USC though is the school that holds Ahmu’s heart for the early going and the Trojans have the lead and could be tough to beat if the Trojans tender an offer.
Ahmu is also getting recruiting attention from the likes of Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and Nebraska.
